Kovu Needs a Home

About Kovu

Meet Kovu, who is looking for a forever home.

Kovu will become your best friend instantly, with his huge grin and copious amounts of kisses and cuddles when he meets you. He is 6 years old & loves affection and lots of cuddles. He is calm in the house & loves loves loves his walks, his favourite place is a quiet beach or river where he can swim with his ball. Fetch is his favourite game and he will do anything for food. He knows basic commands and enjoys to do them when asked. He is house trained. He loves sunbathing in the garden for hours. He loves to be with you on the sofa or bed and enjoys very close company. He is fine being left on his own in the house for a couple hours as long as there is no food to find and eat as he can get quite mischievous. He is a very strong dog on the lead but is well behaved on walks and has excellent recall. He loves nothing more to curl up by your feet or on them and snooze the evening away. He needs a fun loving family who loves cuddles just as much as he does.

Kovu has lived with a cat before and currently shares his home openly with a house rabbit.

Please contact the rescue if you are interested.

Home checks, Vet checks and Adoption fees apply.
